You are not a burden. This is your safe space to talk about what you're going through.

Rediscover your true North

You've been having a hard time for a while, trying to seem like everything's fine, but it's getting to be too much.  You might be coping with anxiety, a big life change, or health concern.  You feel stuck, wanting to make a change, but it's hard to move towards the life you want.  You've been trying to deal with things on your own, not wanting to be a burden to your friends and family, but you can't seem to feel better.  


Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support and walk along side you in this journey. We'll work together to recalibrate your inner compass, promote growth by giving you tools to develop a deeper awareness, self compassion, and help you live a more fulfilling and values-rich life. 

However you've arrived here, I'm so glad you're here and taking time to see if therapy or coaching is right for you. Often the most difficult part, is just making the decision to begin.
